            Hi Jeff, thanks, I have now put an order in for the 8.9inch which should arrive within the next 2 weeks as it has already been released in the US. When the 7.7 comes out I will give the other to my daughter.

            hi again, went to buy the 8.9 today, held it in my hand, but it is still too big for me, also there was no usb poort on it nor micro sd card slot, dont understand this as this is in all the specs I have read. Anyway didnt buy it, will wait until the 7.7 comes out.

          4.  Avatar

            Hi! If it’s too big for you I suggest you wait for the 7.7″. I have seen the 8.9, and I think the size is just right for me. Well that’s just me. But if you want the smaller version, you should wait for the 7.7. is iPad 2 not your option?

          5. Janettescharenborg Avatar

            Hi, the ipad is also just as big as the 8.9. problem is they are too big for in a coat pocket, the 7.7 will fit very nicely in my handbag.
            and dont forget I want a usb poort and a micro card slot Let me know if you buy the 8.9 and what you think of it. Have a good day.

  4. Any update of when this thing might be released? Have seen some sites that say October.

    1.  Avatar

      That is still not confirmed. But I do now that Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is now ready for pre order.

      1. Janettescharenborg Avatar

        well not here yet Jeff, look every day for news on release.

        1.  Avatar

          Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 is different from 7.7. I think. I need to confirm it first. ^_^

          1. Janettescharenborg Avatar

            the samsung galaxy tab 7 plus is not the new 7.7

  5. Janettescharenborg Avatar

    after searching on google found this site, which confirms there is a new samsung galaxy tab 7 plus being released end october, not the 7.7 as we were expecting, why it doesnt say. Now I dont know what to do.

    1.  Avatar

      Yes. 7.0 plus will be release and not the 7.7. No words yet about the 7.7. BTW, do you really need the 7.7 now? you need a tab that has a USB port right? how about Acer Iconia Tab A500-10S16u 10.1-Inch Tablet Computer (Aluminum Metallic)

      1. Janettescharenborg Avatar

        Hi Jeff, I already have the first samsung galaxy tab P1000 and am very pleased with it, but it doesnt have a usb poort. THe acer Iconia is just too big for me, I have seen all the top models, and will stick to my choice of the 7.7, just have to be patient, and wait till it is released.

    Gee. I read on one review that the 7.7 will NOT be released in the US! Hate that, cause I was really looking at replacing my iPad2 with a slight smaller Android model and this one looked perfect!

    1.  Avatar

      Are you sure? What site is that? It’s too early to day that. US is one of the largest consumers in the world. and it would be foolish for samsung not to release the 7.7 in US. IT has better features than 8.9

      1. it is coming out in US

        1.  Avatar

          Do you have a link for that?

    Has anyone any news as to when these new tabs are to be released??? the 7 plus should be in the stores now (Holland) but it is not. There is no word on the 7.7 cant understand why, so if you do have any news please let me know. Thanks.

  8. Today is already 1 December 2011 – Any idea when is the release date?

    well I think samsung have already missed the boat by not bringing this tab on time out. In just a couple of weeks we will begin to see quad core tabs en acer komt ook met een nieuwe tab. Just too bad for samsung, and a pity for us.

    i can’t wait to buy it man. But they say it comes out on March 25, 2012.

      Where did you read that? I been waiting for what appears to be a year now.

  11. Droussanov Avatar

    Dear Samsung Corp. I was waiting for 8.9 tab but it is waste of time. It appeared alwais in weak version. Now there is another dream – beautiful dream, but is this only wish, or real product! Tab 7.7 3G/4G, 32/64GB Micro SD Card Slot, GPRS and …. It will never appear on the Market.!
